Sicily: Palermo & the Northwest (Footprint Focus) (Footprint Focus Guide)

Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars useful but overrated, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best thing about this guide is that it gives the up to date opening/closing hrs of places to see. Otherwise quite general, but with some useful bits. I think it is an overrated guide. Some gradation of places of interest would be useful; for example, Monreale cathedral is lost in many things to see around Palermo, being probably the most spectacular place on the whole island.

4.0 out of 5 stars driving in Sicily, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got several maps of Sicily+large Michelin Italy atlas. But this is the best map. Best detail. So if you are going to buy only one map this is the best - obvious - choice in my opinion (I've done 1.5K km in 11 days). In Sicily forget (most of the time) about road numbers - go for directions (cities, places); they dominate the road signs. Otherwise driving in Sicily is really no so bad and quite pleasant (excluding Palermo - special case), and Italians (beside all problems they create for themselves and others) are very good drivers .
